Season: Winter 2018
Key Pieces: Sk8-Hi Reissue and Slip-On sneakers, T-Shirt, trucker hat
Editor’s Notes: Collaborations with iconic rock band Metallica aren’t going to fade away, as Vans has now created an exclusive capsule of footwear, apparel and accessories with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees for the third time.
Highlighting the newly-designed Metallica logo for a heavy metal rendition of Vans classic silhouettes, the Sk8-Hi Reissue is defined by an etched Metallica logo on the sidewall with a wrapped version on the quarter panels, while the Classic Slip-On features an all-over logo print across the vamp and is finished with the same engraved Metallica logo on the sidewalls. A short sleeve T-shirt and trucker hat round out the offering using a Vans x Metallica logo.
Availability for the entire collection begins Friday, February 16 at Vans retailers, online and via Metallica’s official website.
In other new releases, Vans’s UltraRange Rapidweld is built for surfers on the go.
